Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually perfect. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its top-shelf assessments in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A for its short-term care grade. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was strong in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last category, we gave this facility a A+ for our nursing score. This wrapped up a first-rate report card. Our nursing rating weighs several components, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a patient more frequently.
